The Campus

A few of my favorite things

September 1, 2010

Welcome back, everyone! I figured now would be an appropriate moment to appreciate all the things we love about our school. After all, by the time midterms come around we’ll be right back to normal: wild–eyed with stress,...

Keep on creepin' on

September 1, 2010

A new year. A fresh start. Recycled bags all the way from China and quirky little license plate T-shirts distinguish a whole new class of freshmen. As the cranky old people we are, we’d like to ramble about the old days. ...

Editorial: Not dead yet

August 27, 2010

What are you doing? Don’t you have books to read or beers to chug or cute girls in your O-Chem class to hit on? Why are you reading The Campus? Better yet, why are you reading it online? Don’t you know that newspapers are...

Senior Column- Amelia Conte

April 28, 2010

Why do I love being a part of this publication? I don’t know if it’s the fact that my fellow seniors and I were head editors for two years instead of one, or maybe it’s that we chose to revamp the entire layout of the paper. Maybe it’s the sens...

Senior Column- Ray Smith

April 28, 2010

Immigration reform policies were widely considered throughout most of the Bush Administration.  Since President Obama’s administration took charge, immigration issues have largely been downplayed while other issues such as...

Tea Party Troubles

April 28, 2010

I find myself troubled by the “Tea Party Movement” that is bubbling and churning in the contemporary political scene. This is not an unusual statement; many observers have reacted to this movement with responses ranging from...

Senior Column- Kat Bengston

April 28, 2010

I had no idea what to write for this column. The great well of inspiration finally ran dry and I sat on a deserted island, a treeless, waterless island, alone and without any imagination to call my own. Things were looking rather grim. But then I ...

Senior Column- Katie Hess

April 28, 2010

Sitting down at my computer, I had no idea where to start with my “goodbye column” for The Campus. I’ve had so many experiences as part of the newspaper that it’s difficult to decide what makes it into an article with a word count, even if I...
